Today I tried a new sourdough recipe that Elizabeth Hoyt (thanks for letting me share it, Elizabeth!) posted on the Vintage Remedies sourdough facebook page. It is FABULOUS! Great texture, not overly sour. The only strange thing is that it fell a bit during baking- and this is an issue I have with almost every loaf and I have no idea why.
I ate three pieces today. I had to force myself to stop because I didn't want any gastroparesis issues cropping up!
1 cup active starter
3 cups flour ( I used half white wheat and half AP)
1 t salt
1 1/2 Tbs honey (I didn't really measure this.....)
2 Tbs melted coconut oil
1 cups water
Method: mix starter thru oil until combined, add water to the consistency of bread dough (amount will vary depending upon hydration of starter, type of flour) Knead in mixer 8-10 minutes, until windowpane is visible. (I just let it knead for 10 minutes, not sure if it was actually at the windowpane stage.....) Let rise in a warm place 5-6 hours, until doubled. (I let it rise overnight - about 12 hours and it was fine). Pat onto countertop, shape into loaf, set in greased loaf pan, and let rise an additional 2-3 hours until doubled again. Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes. (I bake my bread until the internal temperature is just over 200 degrees.)
I thought my dough was a bit wet actually. I had used the full cup of water plus another teaspoon or so, but since it turned out so wonderfully, I guess it was okay!!!
I'm looking forward to eating some more tomorrow and baking another loaf in a couple of days!!
